You have waited to buy your first home and now you are in, it is important to ensure that all parts of your home, inside and out, are how you want and create that homely feel that you want and you have waited for. 

In order to get your garden just how you want there are a few very simple steps that are guaranteed to create that perfect outdoor space that you will be able to enjoy. 

Keep it Simple

When it comes to creating a wow garden and outside space simplicity is key. You don’t want your garden to be too complicated. Simple doesn’t mean dull. You can still have everything you want within your garden but a simple lawn shape makes a great core design that you can shape the rest of your garden around. 

Flowers And Plants

To brighten up your backyard and add some vibrancy and a splash of colour,  flowers and plants are a wonderful addition. You do not need to be an expert gardener in order to have stunning flower beds. If you are still not confident enough to go all out with flower beds, the use of flowers and plants in pots and planters can still allow vibrancy, add colour and provide different textures and height to your outdoor space. 

Water Feature

When it comes to your garden it isn’t always just about the visual aesthetics. To create an atmosphere you need to consider all of the senses. The addition of a water feature, no matter how big or small, adds that therapeutic and relaxing sound that only running water or a trickle can achieve. Not only can they create a showcase feature to any garden but a water feature can also offer many other benefits such as allowing you to relax, entice and support wildlife to your garden and offer a sensory aspect to your space. 


In order to transform your outdoor space into an extension of your home where you can host, entertain or relax at the end of a day, having quality lighting is important. It allows you to first be able to see and utilise your outdoor space at any time of the day, but it also allows you to showcase parts of your garden in order to create the atmosphere you desire, whether that be magical, relaxation, lighting for children to play. Companies such as Smillie Electrical will be able to support this and ensure that all electrical work outside is safe for all weather. 

Entertaining Area  

Gardens are not just for their beauty. They are a great social space for hosting or spending time with your family. Creating a dedicated entertaining area filled with seats, cushions, lanterns and an outdoor rug, can provide the opportunity for you to add texture, colour and comfort. It is important that when designing your outdoor space that you are thinking about everyone and their requirements. Having an outdoor entertainment or sitting space ensures that everyone is able to enjoy the garden and be able to enjoy it.
